The Action Center has a shelter program for couples, families and single adults. Clients may stay in the program for up to 45 days while working with Case Managers to develop goals and work toward self-sufficiency. Clients are expected to be working, looking for work or going to school while in the program. Diligent work toward goals and the development of a transition plan will help clients to prepare for a stable housing situation upon exit from the shelter.
If you are in need of shelter and are nervous at the prospect of living in a shelter, know that you are not alone. Many clients come to us after struggling to live in their vehicles or on the street. These clients had many fears and reservations about coming to us for aid.
Although we wish that we could provide shelter for everyone it is not possible. There is NO waiting list and to find out if we have availability, you must call The Action Center at 303.237.7704. Due to the large volume of calls, messages regarding shelter availability may not be returned. Please continue to call for daily availability information.
If you call and find that a shelter room is available that fits your family size, please come to The Action Center as soon as possible. Clients seeking shelter will be seen on a first-come first-serve basis, so it is important to get here early. You will be pre-screened to determine if you meet the shelter requirements. It is important to understand that this could be a time-consuming process based on the volume of clients seeking shelter. After pre-screening, interviews will be conducted between 1:30 and 3:00 pm. Interviews are determined upon the order in which clients arrived at The Action Center earlier in the day. You may not receive an interview because once the shelter room is filled, interviews will cease.
